There are only a few weeks left of the NBA regular season each game is becoming more and more important for a majority of the teams. Monday presents us with eight games on the main slate and a plethora of options on PrizePicks.
Speaking of “PrizePicks” in general, it is a creative new way to parlay picks based on expected fantasy point production. To dive into the ins and outs of everything PrizePicks, FTN’s Tyler Loechner wrote a comprehensive App Review.
How to Play PrizePicks NBA
For the sake of this NBA article, the format is simple.
You pick two, three, or four players and predict whether or not they will go over or under their projected fantasy point total.
When parlaying the players, the larger your parlay, the better the payout:
- Two-pick entry pays 3x (max entry: $400)
- Three-pick entry pays 5x (max entry: $200)
- Four-pick entry pays 10x (max entry: $100)
As a bonus offer, there is a “flex play” option if you choose to run a 4-man parlay. This will provide some security, as you can earn 1.5x your buy-in if three of your four picks hit.
The first game on the NBA slate locks at 7:10 PM ET.
An important note - these lines can shift over the course of the day leading up until lock. The lines that I am quoting are at the time of writing (Monday morning). I will be in the PrizePicks discord channel (which is FREE!) up until lock to help out with how to adjust to the changing projections.
